Flight Facilities' Decades Tour will take fans back down memory lane and breathe new life into songs that have defined generations.
Australia’s own Flight Facilities are celebrating their favourite music of the last 40 years with their continuous decades mixes, and this October, they’re bringing their latest in the series, the long-awaited 2012-2022 mix, to venues across the country.
The Decades Tour will find the Aussie duo – Hugo Gruzman and Jimmy Lyell – performing across three weekends in October, starting at Brisbane’s Fortitude Music Hall before heading to Byron Bay’s Beach Hotel, the Melbourne Pavilion, Perth’s Rechabite Hall, Adelaide’s Harvest Rock Festival, and the Liberty Hall Car Park in Sydney.
Tickets go on sale on Friday, 11 August, at 10 am AEST via the Secret Sounds website.
In April 2012, Flight Facilities embarked on the most ambitious undertaking of their career, chronicling their favourite music over four decades, starting with the 1970s.
According to a press release, the duo’s Decades Tour will take fans back down memory lane and breathe new life into songs that have defined generations.
Flight Facilities dropped the highly anticipated 2012-2022 Decade Mix in early July. Gruzman explained the latest instalment in their Decade Mixes, “It was a decade best summed up by podcasts, cancel culture, fake news and memeing our way through tragedy and triumph.”

The release tracked era-defining moments, such as the debuts of Billie Eilish, Interplanetary Criminal & Eliza Rose, Fred Again.., Childish Gambino’s This Is America, Tame Impala’s genre-defying The Less I Know The Better, Daft Punk’s Get Lucky, and many more. Remixing 78 tracks, it’s a genuinely remarkable piece of work. You can check it out below.
Gruzman added, "But was 2012-2022 any crazier than eras past, or was it that the prevalence of social media put major international events on our digital doorsteps? A Hollywood star becoming the leader of the free world? Bizarre… but it wasn’t the first time.”
“Obscure global events just felt more tangible than ever, and we were all finally able to have our say. Communication with pop stars and major companies was instantaneous, and stardom was diluted by the ability for strangers to become a viral sensation overnight.”
You can celebrate it all – the viral sensations, the memes, nostalgia and the rest, at the band’s upcoming Decades Tour.
